Laura Marling Darkness Descends Lyrics

Last updated: 04/07/2011 11:00:00 AM

You're holding bits of styrofoam
With your face painted on to your friends,
You listen to them whine and moan
About everything you can't understand.

Can I just say I don't fear the light,
But darkness descends once more into my life.

And suddenly we're all alone in silence,
So I take a step away.
I look up to the falling snow
As it makes its home upon my face.
Well I wouldn't want to ruin something I couldn't save,
The gap will keep us safe,
The gap will keep us safe.

Step away, get me when I'm down.

And suddenly I'm five years old
And I'm just so cold I want to cry.
I haul up on my gentlemen,
Who have always been there in hard times.
They're just not like that man of mine,
Who visit me from time to time.

My love, I treasure you.

I hear that summer's coming back
So I stretch out my back and travel a long,
The winter though it darkens me
It is pure and clean and all I want.
I'll apologize to the ones I love,
For leaving them when the sun comes up.

Too bright for me, darkness descends.

Oh well I'm not well again,
And once more darkness it descends.
The ground is falling under me,
And I can't find the means to leave.

Convinced that I am going mad,
Oh I bury my head into his hands
So sure that I'm loosing faith,
Oh I clear a space in his fathers land.

You deal with God far too young,
Before you know it your life has run away.
